In Honor of the Irish
Celebrate Saint Patty’s Day with Some of the Emerald Isle’s Best Fare
With the onset of Spring comes the promise of perfect weather and a slew of exciting activities. Basketball fans can revel in the excitement of March Madness, neat freaks can deep dive into Spring cleaning, and best of all, the luck of the Irish is celebrated with green beer galore, four-leaf clovers, and always epic Saint Patty’s Day celebrations throughout the city. In honor of one of the year’s most festive holidays, we’ve rounded up our favorite spots to indulge in classic Irish fare and the city’s best Irish whiskey libations. So grab your green, don your “Kiss Me I’m Irish” flair, and get ready to taste the flavors of The Emerald Isle:
Located in the Financial District, The Dead Rabbit is a celebration of all things Irish, from its classic Irish pub atmosphere to its renowned Irish coffees, Guinnesses on tap, and classic Irish dishes. The venue has repeatedly graced lists for the World’s 50 Best Bars, with an upstairs Parlour and artisanal craft cocktails. Locals favor the kitchen’s brunch, which serves up a full Irish breakfast, including rashers, bangers, and a simple yet delightful offering of homemade Irish breads with Kerrygold butter, marmalade, and clotted cream.

For a truly authentic experience, The Late Late in the Lower East Side, is a nice change from your typical Irish pub. Inspired by a 1960’s Irish residence, The Late Late melds warm Irish hospitality with authentic charm and an inspired menu. Though the menu incorporates global twists, classic Irish ingredients are a staple throughout. Meat lovers can delight in the restaurant’s Ballymaloe Burger, made with Dublin cheddar cheese and classic Ballymaloe sauce. Even better, the bar serves up over 50 brands of Irish whiskies.

For the best drink to wash down all of that rich Irish fare, visit District M, conveniently located onsite at the Row NYC. The perfect spot for a nightcap, District M comes alive in the evening hours featuring a commissioned digital art gallery by paparazzo extraordinaire, Ron Galella. Though the chic atmosphere doesn’t scream “Irish Pub,” the expert bartenders make drinks so addictive that it’s still a must for any itinerary. In honor of Saint Patrick, order up the Central Park Callout, a delicious cocktail made with Dewar’s Whiskey, Giffard Pamplemousse, Pavan Liqueur, and bitters.
